    Where can I sign my child up to learn sign language.?
    I’m in Pasadena Texas

    ADMIN – Hi Mari,

    Try solo first with the help of the Standard Kit available in our store. If that does not work I will try to locate a mama group so you can learn in community.

    Hi, was trying to find the sign for “pick up” or “hold”. In the meaning to hold the baby. Like, Do you want me to pick you up?” Or “Do you want you me to hold you?”
    Thank you!

    ADMIN – Hi Natalia,

    I usually combine the sign for up and the sign for baby
